When the topic of Captain Murphy came up in my interview with Flying Lotus, I made sure to inquire on whether he was a tangible human, since his appearance on the Flying Lotus and Earl Sweatshirt collaboration “Between Friends” caused much confusion. Is it Del The Funkee Homosapien morphed into an actual Deltron bot? Is it Tyler the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt spliced together? Or is it just some Adult Swim weirdo assuming a Sealabl 2021 moniker?
FlyLo was pleased to report that Captain Murphy is a very real dude and that he's been working on his debut for Brainfeeder. On Twitter Captain Murphy hinted at his debut, Duality, dropping as soon as November 15 or even sooner, but no guarantees were made. He aligned himself with fellow Brainfeeder rappers Azizi Gibson and Jeremiah Jae on “Immaculation” for our virgin glimpse into Duality. Based on the animations and album art, I'm assuming Captain Murphy resembles a mini-Rick Ross. Based on “Immaculation”, he remains a vocal-skitzo enigma from Los Angeles.
